Come and join us in 2020

2020 will see new and exciting changes to our annual conference.

The 2020 title is - CVplus: Because CVD is never alone! The programme’s theme will focus on patients with cardiovascular disease alongside co-morbidities and/or further complications such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Hypertension
  • Chronic liver disease
  • Mental illness including depression, anxiety and dementia
  • Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • Cancer
  • Hormonal conditions in men and women

We have an exciting new and unique concept for 2020. The plenary sessions will be highly interactive whereby delegates will become participants in workshop style sessions rather than attend lectures. Within each session, through engagement with the faculty and speakers, we will encourage group discussions between participants in a round table layout using keypads to highlight the thoughts and consensus of the room. We will use real life patient case studies to review the evidence, discuss the treatment and management process and finish with 'top tips' and key messages for participants to take home and implement into their daily practice. As always we will promote best practice in a friendly but informal setting, developing our Issues & Answers community network.

We will also extend the learning beyond the event itself by offering the opportunity for participants to join colleagues caring for these same ‘patients’ who will ‘visit’ them online, allowing them to continue enhancing their clinical skills via an exciting new website which is coming soon.
